I wish I could hurry up and find my style. Right now I feel like I’m just an overdressed person, but without a particular style. I feel I have no real aesthete, no one thing that defines my look. I tend to look “professional” even when I’m not trying to. It’s boring. I need ideas to define my look and make it easier to get dressed in the mornings.
I’ve been clearing out my closet, getting rid of the clothes that I feel are not getting me to my desired look. If I could I would look like this all day every day.
I love how elegant and polished Audrey Hepburn looks. And of course the ever super-glam and well pulled together Victoria Beckham is another huge inspiration. But I find it hard to find outfits that give that same feeling. I must be shopping in the wrong places! Any tips would be much appreciated.
Although I am no where near as skinny as either woman, I think I may have a similar body style in that I have the small waist and good legs. What I think they capitalize on is emphasizing these same traits. I sometimes I think I could even go full fifties/sixties retro glam with the small waists and pouffy skirts. But since I have nice ta-tas, I think the look could go super-sexy super quickly so I’m a bit wary.
The other thing they do well is wear understated accessories. VB always has the best shoes and bags and Audrey is the queen of classic jewelery. I’ve tried the whole chunky jewelery thing, and sometimes it looks extremely costumey on me. I love the look on others, but I tend to stick to studs/hoops/simple chains and pearls.
I also love the fabulous style of Natasha over at http://fashionablyfab.com, that lady always looks well put together and dresses very well for her figure. Thanks for stopping by and reading my random rant! Don’t forget to check out the lovely ladies at Visible Mondays!
